This is one of the worst ideas that the Canadian Government has come up with. Even Texas who is strict, think this is a stupid bill. They've tried it and it doesn't work. Education and prevention is far more effective and costs far less then incarceration.
Overall the crime rate in Canada has gone down. Why create a bill that aims to punish non-violent crime and fill our jails? Do we really want to spend all our taxes supporting prisoners, which get worse by being in jail or would we rather spend the money on health and education like a normal first world country????
Here is a link to a Facebook event for this Friday EVERYWHERE in Canada! Just go to your justice hall and Protest!!!!
